Suggested Hymns: Make Me a Channel of Your Peace, God of Day and God of Darkness, Peace Prayer
Speak to every human heart and fill it with the conviction: I am wanted ...
Bring healing to our broken, desperate world. Comfort those who are lonely. Give those who are depressed and despairing the grace to seek help. Inspire all of us to reach out in love and solidarity to everyone we meet. Build in us a culture of life, where we demonstrate in both deed and word the truth that every life, no matter its conditions, is precious and unrepeatable.
Lord, speak to every human heart and fill it with the conviction: I am wanted; I have a task in history; I am accepted, I am loved; it is good that I exist; it is good to be a human being.
Your love crushes all loneliness and isolation. May every human heart experience your love, and, may each of us be your love for others. Amen.
